5 Blockbuster moves WWE should make during the draft
"It's time to shake things up around here!"
Those were the words uttered by Vince McMahon shortly before he announced WWE's first-ever draft in 2002 and although it would never have the same impact, a draft is still a nice way to freshen things up. It is also a chance for the WWE Universe to see the seemingly impossible happen right before their very eyes.
That's what makes this upcoming draft so enticing. Not only does it come on the heels of what has to be some of the company's best programming, but it is a chance to ensure that things stay that way. If nothing else, this is a very powerful tool at WWE's disposal and one has to wonder what they will do with it.
In the end, WWE has many options during the upcoming draft, especially with RAW, SmackDown, and NXT to pull from, but here are the five biggest blockbuster moves WWE can make. As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below and tell us who you think should switch brands and why.
#5 Bring Bobby Lashley to SmackDown
While many will look at a Superstar like Bobby Lashley and see nothing but wasted potential and bad booking, critics seem to always forget about the level of legitimacy he brings to the squared circle. They also forget about his time in MMA, StrikeForce, and Titan Fighting Championship. His experience makes him one of the company's most legitimate fighters.
With that stated, and one of the big selling points of Friday Night SmackDown being legitimacy, it only makes sense for WWE to put Lashley on the Blue Brand. That way, the company can start slowly transitioning casual sports fans into the fold and do it in a way that feels organic.
Fortunately for the WWE Universe, Lashley has already made a hell of a return by showing up on RAW with Lana in a love triangle storyline that fans are sure to enjoy. If nothing else, this proves that WWE is intent on making Lashley a big deal as time goes forward and it could raise his stock up enough for that dream match against Brock Lesnar.
